The online course, "Diversity in Workplace Writing," illustrates how to identify and avoid language bias by analyzing real case studies of agencies that have fallen victim to bias. Every lesson shows alternate ways to write objectively. Although we cannot control people's (mis)interpretations of our writing, we can ensure that it meets current standards of decency when referencing race, sex, gender, orientation, age, medical condition or disability.
As a result of taking this class, you will:
- Understand the definition of unconscious or implicit bias.
- Understand the definition of language bias.
- Understand workplace bias.
- Learn to identify & correct biased writing.
- Get specific tips on correcting biased writing.
- Receive specific strategies for writing objectively.

I was very excited to take this course and do feel there was some good information presented but I wish it went more in-depth with the information provided. This felt very introductory but was not listed as an introduction into diversity writing in the workplace. Other courses are listed as intro courses so I would have chosen something else if I had known this to be the case. It would also be nice if the quizzes would tell you why a question was incorrect. Several of them were very confusing as to why the answer submitted was incorrect. Overall, I think this is a good course for someone who is just getting into DEAI and would like some pointers on language.Read Less
It was helpful to pause after each slide was explained during the video. I felt there was a need for more examples on each category. The ones given were eye-openers, though.

I have had little exposure to this topic, so it was good to learn about it for future reference.
